Is it safe to drop Dotel yet?

Postby chinch sacs » Tue Jun 07, 2005 6:44 pm

I know that he want to get Tommy John but that is the last I heard. When does he go under the knife, is there any possible way he will back out of it?
Fantasy sports are ruled by the 50-50-90 rule...

Anytime you have a 50/50 choice between two players, 90% of the time, you'll get it wrong

I think the A's are still trying to talk Dotel out of it, telling him to just wait another week or 2 and see if the pain goes away. So you can wait until it's official, but 4 doctors couldnt change Dotels mind so I think it's safe to say he's done.

Even if they talk him out of it, He will probably be ineffective for the rest of the season.

What about in a keeper? Is he worth holding on to?

If he has surgery, he won't make it back until next summer the earliest. Even if he does, he will be a setup man. Not sure you want to use up a keeper slot for a setup pitcher coming off major arm surgery.

I would pass. When the smoke clears, see where he ends up. Could be a nice sleeper bargain.

I dropped him.

He's toast as the Oakland closer, for now and forever. Let him go.
